Brief Program Description

Poverty and homelessness, especially for families with school-age children, are significant concerns that merit our immediate attention. Through data, narrative research, and stories, this presentation will discuss the devastating impact of poverty and homelessness on students’ academic achievement, social-emotional well-being, and physical health—collectively calling educational stakeholders to intentionally remedy these adverse effects. The presentation will illuminate the complex dynamics of poverty and its myriad effects on students, PreK–12, along with effective strategies to build holistic resilience, address trauma, and support the diverse needs of low-income students. Examples of responsive school-classroom practices, collaborative community initiatives, innovative ideas for promoting healthy development, and increasing the educational opportunities for economically disadvantaged students will be shared. Participants will also receive a handout with practical strategies and a list of additional resources to help facilitate visible impact and positive change!
